Maybe if I can't find the words, it's because I don't have to. 
The past few weeks have been a rough time for my family; the tragic death of both a cousin and a beloved family pet have both served as reminders of the inefficacy of words to convey our most powerful feelings. When Shakespea...

Early Modern Thriftshopping
When the King's Men staged Middleton's A Game at Chess  in 1624, their satire of the Spanish ambassador Diego Sarmiento de Acuña, conde de Gondomar was so explicit that they acquired pieces of Gondomar's wardrobe to use as costumes for the character of the ...

Story
Tagline
Acietes transeundae sunt.
Introduction
Tony Tambasco (that's me!) holds an MFA in directing and a Master of Letters (an academic degree) in Shakespeare and Performance from the American Shakespeare Center's partner program with Mary Baldwin College. If you ask me something related to Shakespeare or his contemporaries, expect an earful.

While my training is as a director, I have worked fairly consistently as both a stage director and designer for the past decade, and have more lately begun to explore acting, musical performance, and playwriting. I am interested in connecting with fellow artists and companies devoted to creative storytelling and who embrace the challenges of manifesting their artistic visions.
